Dean Nancy Rapoport Resigns
Posted by Christine Hurt

NancyVia Brian Leiter, Nancy Rapoport, Dean of the University of Houston Law Center, has resigned.  Nancy became Dean during my first year directing the legal writing program at Houston, so I will always think of her as "my dean."  I don't envy any Dean the difficult job of dean-ing, but Nancy's tenure has been "extreme dean-ing."  Within a year of her arriving, a tropical storm destroyed much of the law school and caused (at that time) the largest academic loss in U.S. history.  Within a few months, though, the community was rocked with the fall of Enron, the acquisition of Compaq, September 11 and the consequences to industry, including Continental Airlines, and a general economic downturn in the oil patch.  I wish Dean Rapoport well in the next chapter of her career; may she teach (or dean) in less interesting times.
